Inscribed Photograph signed: "To The/American/Museum of/Historical/Documents/Jerry Colonna", B/w 10¾x13¾. Jerry Colonna (1904-1986) was a talented trombonist and comedian who sported a large handlebar mustache. He made several films, beginning with 52nd St (1937), joined Bob Hope on many USO tours, and was a frequent TV guest star in the 1950s and 1960s. When violinist Hehudi Menuhin performed on Bob Hope's radio show, fellow guest Colonna quipped, "Who's Yehudi?" Although the musician was already well known, Colonna liked the phrase, repeating it often on later broadcasts. For a time, "Who's Yehudi" (which also means "Who's Jewish" in Hebrew, became a popular catch phrase and the inspiration for popular novelty songs. One of Colonna's most popular characters was a dimwitted professor. He published a novel, The Loves of Tullio (1970). Fine condition.
